 Handheld Code Reader with Mobile Computer

Industry-leading DataMan� DPM (direct part mark) reading technology is now available on a mobile computer 
DataMan 9500
The DataMan 9500 mobile computer was specifically designed for the rugged conditions of the factory floor yet is small and lightweight enough to fit comfortably in the hand with easy-to-use ergonomic controls.


This industrial-grade mobile computer is ideal for reading DPM (direct part mark) codes in applications where operators need to read and view code data but cannot be stationed at a terminal or PC.  Mobile code reading applications include subassembly rework, repair/maintenance, inventory management, process tracking and more!


  • 2DMax™ and 1DMax™ technology has set the industry standard for code reading.  
  • UltraLight� integrated illumination provides different types of lighting techniques used for reading DPM codes.  
  • Liquid lens variable focus technology enables a single reader to decode DPM marks close up, or barcodes from a distance.  
  • Wi-Fi Communications connects directly to factory networks via 802.11 a/b/g protocols on 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands for real-time wireless communication.
Positioning and Control of FPD Glass 

New Way Announces Assignment of Patent for Positioning and Control of FPD Glass


New Way� Air Bearings, the world's largest independent manufacturer of porous media air bearing products, announced that is has acquired ownership of US patent #6781684, titled 'Workpiece Levitation Using Alternating Positive and Negative Pressure Flows'.  


This patent  adds to New Way's intellectual property in the field of handling and control of thin substrates, particularly in the area of optical inspection of flat panel displays (FPDs).

Air Bearings  

New Way provides a line of scalable, modular solutions for the non-contact handling of glass is critical to the Flat Panel Display (FPD) and Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Panel manufacturing processes.


  • Air Bushings - Designed based on round shaft guides these components run on standard precision steel shafting.
  • Air Bars - New Way offers a line of modular air bearing components specifically designed to meet the non-contact glass-handling requirements of the Flat Panel Display and Solar Module manufacturing processes.
  • Air Bearings - The ideal components for building frictionless linear motion.
  • Radial Air Bearings - The ideal components for building frictionless rotary motion,in either concave or convex configurations.

EtherCAT Digital Drives
Copley Controls Digital Drives with EtherCAT Communications


EtherCAT Drives

Offering both servo & stepper drives in efficient, high power-density module and panel-mount packages, Copley has the solution for your EtherCAT system. DC as well as AC-powered drives are available in the 100W - 6kW power range. 2-axis drives significantly reduce cost per node. A comprehensive set of motor feedbackinterfaces is standard. All drives feature high resolution A/D converters for optimal current control as well as fast, hardware-based position capture and setpoint trigger outputs.

EtherCAT is the open real-time Ethernet network that sets new standards for real-time performance and topology flexibility.  EtherCAT reaches new dimensions in network performance, for example; communication with 100 servo axes only takes 100 �s. During this time, all axes are provided with set values and control data and report their actual position and status.
